This November, Lonely Planet placed two of Norway’s train lines as the top two entries for the Top Ten Scenic Rail Journeys in Europe! Number one is the Rauma Line between Dombås and Åndalsnes, and number two is the Bergen Line from Oslo, with the added detour to Flåm.

Both lines are very popular with tourists, especially the Flåm railway which can be combined with the famous fjord cruise to Gudvangen. We have groups taking this route every season, and it is good to see that it is still maintaining it’s top place among the scenic railways of Europe. It only goes to show that for sightseeing by train, Norway is still the place to go.

For more information on the Rauma line and Bergen/Flåm line, you can watch the informationals made by the NSB (Norwegian State Railways) here:
